Class of 19514- 


Saint Mary's Junior College 

Raleigh, North Carolina 
Sf. Mary's Junior College Library 


The 1954 Stage Coach Staff of Saint 
Mary's Junior College presents with pleasure 
this annual to the students of our beloved 
alma mater. We sincerely hope that in the 
future when you look at your Stage Coach 
you will remember Saint Marys as the school 
where life revolves around honesty, friendship, 
and integrity. Saint Mary's will always be a 
part of our lives, and its spirit will follow us in 
later years. 

Smedes Hall 


Cheshire Hall 

The students of St. Mary's Junior College wish to 
express their sincere appreciation to those who have 
made possible the erection of our new science building, 
Cheshire Hall. We are very proud of this lovely addition 
to St. Marys campus and will endeavor to preserve its 


As advisor to the Senior Class and to the Honor Council. 
she has guided us patiently and understandingly through 
this year at Saint Mary's. Her friendliness and cheerfulness 
make her an essential part of life here at school. 

It is with deepest pleasure, gratitude, and love that we 
dedicate the Stage Coach of 1954 to 


Saint Mary's Alma Mater 

Saint Mary's! wherever thy daughters may be 
They love thy high praises to sing, 

And tell of thy beauties of campus and tree 
Around which sweet memories cling; 

They may wander afar, out of reach of thy name, 
Afar out of sight of thy grove, 

But the thought of Saint Mary's aye kindles a flame 
Of sweet recollections and love. 

Beloved Saint Mary's! How great is our debt! 
Thou has cared for thy daughters full well; 

They can never thy happy instructions forget, 
Nor fail of thy virtues to tell. 

The love that they feel is a heritage pure, 
An experience wholesome and sweet. 

Through the fast rolling years it will grow and endure, 
Be a lamp and a guide to our feet. 

May the future unite all the good of thy past 

With the best that new knowledge can bring. 

Ever onward and upward thy course! To the last 
Be thou steadfast in every good thing. 

Generations to come may thy fair daughters still 
Fondly think on thy halls and thy grove 

And carry thy teachings — o'er woodland and hill — 
Of earnestness, wisdom, and love.

Sincere, selfless, steadfast. These words symbolize Dr. Stone. In 
time of our need, he is helpful; in time of our trouble, understanding. 
His true friendship and guiding hand have supported us throughout 
our years at St. Mary's. 


The high ideals of our dean in 
future times of indecision will direct 
us toward finer ways of life. Her 
lofty principles will remain embodied 
in us wherever we are. She is our 
aruidinsr star. 



His cheerful greetings and inspiring 
words have enabled us to be steadfast 
in our courage, patient in our daily 
dealings, and firm in our beliefs. His 
home is always open to us and his 
warm hospitality is something we 
shall never forget.

Class Prophecy 

May 29, 1975 
Miss Elizabeth Williams 
Alumnae Secretary 
Saint Mary's Junior College 
Raleigh, North Carolina 

Dear "Gigi," 

As you know, earlier in the spring most of the members of the 
class of 1954 made a pilgrimage to Saint Mary's. We thought 
you might be interested in knowing some facts about our ex-class- 
mates so that you can have something to put in the Bulletin about 
our class. 

It all started when Lorrie Clark, famed lecturer and traveler, 
left Siam after a few weeks stay to head toward Saint Mary's 
where her daughter, Huberta, is a student. She planned to go 
via India, North Africa, and Western Europe. As soon as she 
disembarked in Calcutta, she heard through Martha Barber's 
agents that the latter was in Delhi attempting to sell her latest 
invention to increase rice production. When they got together, 
Martha decided to join her on their pilgrimage. By the time they 
had reached Saint Mary's, they had seen almost all the members 
of the class of '54 and had persuaded many of them to join them 
on their journey. 

Lorrie and Martha found Mela Royall, Foreign Minister to 
Afghanistan, in the American Embassy at Kabul with her Secre- 
tary, Jessine Hart. Mela had already been foreign minister to 
many other countries, but the United States Government always 
keeps her in the most strategic area. A few weeks earlier Mela 
and Jessine had seen Frances Stubinger and Alma Weston in the 
harem of a reknown Indian Prince. Jessine notified them about 
the pilgrimage, but due to circumstances beyond their control, 
they were unable to join the merry throng. Our able foreign 
minister wired Susan Hayes and Trissy Holt in the oil fields of 
Arabia about the journey. The two multimillionaires had been 
having a difficult time trying to convince the Arabians that the 
oil there belonged to them, but they were then ready to return 
to the States. 

The next person the group met was Jeanette Uzzell who was 
attempting to swim down the Suez; she had crossed the English 
Channel the preceding year in record time. She told Lorrie and 
the others that Gray Proctor and Dr. Harriett Conger were both 
in South Africa. Gray was fulfilling her ambition to go to Africa 
and was finding additions for her animal collection. Harriett, 
wife of a prominent witch doctor, was assisting her husband in 
a search for new herbs for medicines. 

From Egypt they went to Greece where they encountered 
Mary Jordan and Connie Shaner making a detailed study of the 
classics. Much to their disappointment and surprise the English 
department at Saint Mary's had taught them all there was to 
know; therefore they joined the group. Next they traveled to 
Rome where Sibby Callaway and Nancy Glenn had retired, 
leaving Myra Thayer in charge of their New York establishment. 
The two Neo-Romans spent their leisure studying contemporary 
Italian dress styles. They condescended to join the pilgrimage on 
the condition that they stop by Fifth Avenue to give Myra the 
latest fashion news. While in Rome they read in the Roman In- 
ternationale, edited by Pat Perry, that Barbara Seaman, archeol- 
ogist, had discovered in Florence an intricate plan of Dante's 
cosmology for his Divine Comedy, After congratulating Pat on her 
excellent editorial about Barbara they persuaded her to enter 
the group. 

From Rome the former classmates journeyed to Florence 
where they spent four days trying to convince Barbara that she 
should leave her work and go with them. The archeologist said 
no but told them to look for Liz Holmes, Virginia Harriss, and 
Pat Adams who were spending their vacation on the Riviera. 
When the increasing group arrived at Nice, they found Liz, 
Virginia, and Pat having coffee at a side-walk cafe. These two, 
bored with the Riviera eagerly accepted an invitation to go on 
the pilgrimage. 

Their next stop was Paris. Atop the Eiffel Tower they found 
Leslie Hall sketching life on the Left Bank. She could not go 

with them because she had an appointment the following Monday 
with the president of France, whose portrait she was painting. 
However, she did inform them that Liddy Cullen and Anne 
Nichols were in the "parfum" business in Paris. The group went 
to the elite "shoppe," which is the home of custom-made 
"parrum.'' They consented to go with them. 

Upon their arrival in the City on the Thames, Charlotte Lilly, 
Mary Windley Dunn, Timmy Timmons, and Frances Perry in- 
formed the pilgrims that Mary Clayton and Sallie Cowles were 
doing Missionary work in Iceland in preparation for writing 
their next book, Living With the Eskimoes in Iceland. The quartet 
had flown over to London with their husbands for an international 
medical convention. We understand that Timmy and Frances 
were so busy reminiscing about their days at Saint Mary's that 
no one else could get a word in edgewise. Consequently, Charlotte 
and Mary Windley went out for a spot of tea and window-shop- 
ing. The group couldn't persuade the four home-makers to join 
them; thus they set sail for the States without them. 

On their ship, the M.D.J., were members of the United States 
Olympic team. This team included four of the world's best 
hockey players, Dill Walker, Allan Hardin, Nancy Russell, and 
Laura Ann Travis. Another alumna aboard was Carolyn Nelson 
who had just beaten Babe Zaharius in the battle on the tuft for 
the Woman's Golf Championship of the world. Our ex-classmates 
told us that they were delightfully entertained on the ship by 
the golden voice of Marilyn Hedrick, who now records for M.G.M., 
and by Ellen Ozon, the tap-dancing wonder of Miami and the 
rest of the sunny south. The latter is now playing the lead in 
Warner Brothers' latest production. 

Before the port call at Boston, the pilgrims had wired Sara 
Cobb and Kay Baker to meet them at the dock. When these two 
met the party, they told the travelers about their newest enter- 
prize-^Cobb's Cashmeres. Kay assists Sara in her handmade 
sweaters. This duo readily joined the ever-increasing group. 

The next stop was New York, where Nancy and Sibby went 
to see Myra. Myra told them about the success of Linda Garriss'' 
and Allene Wellons' Steak House in Greenwich Village and 
suggested having a party there. When the tourists checked in 
at the Waldorf-Astoria, they were surprised to learn that Joan 
Johnson and Alice Ann Winfield were the managers. They in- 
formed the group that the finalists in the International Bridge 
Contest, Nancy Eversman, Jane Gillette, Janet Rattray, and 
Cynthia Bradley, were staying at the hotel. The next night a 
grand reunion followed. 

From New York the group progressed to Washington, where 
they learned that Pearl Smith was having one of her fabulous 
parties. She invited the group, so that they could meet the in- 
fluential people in the Capitol City. To their delight, they saw 
at the party Frances Spain, Speaker of the House. Before they 
left Washington, they ran into Carolyn Baldridge, Ann Martin, 
and Sharlene Howard who had made the trip to plead a special 
case before a congressional committee concerning tire welfare of 
their Texas dude ranches. 

The wayfarers finally reached their destination, Saint Mary's 
in Raleigh, North Carolina. Going up the steps of Smedes they 
bumped into Mary Grady Burnette, who had left her country 
estate in Garner long enough to attend the big event. Mary 
Grady had notified Scottie Anderson, housemother at Caro- 
lina, that the group was coming, and Scottie was there to greet 
them. Lynda Anderson flew in from Detroit, where she and 
her husband are in the automobile industry. As they walked 
into the Saint Mary's parlor, Mary Lee LaFar, hostess, greeted 
them in the traditional Hornback manner. She insisted on taking 
them to the office of the recently-elected president, Doctor Libby 
Patman, who extended the pilgrims an unusually cordial welcome 
due to the fact that she was relieved to abandon her necessary 
stiff and formal ways. 

"Gigi," we feel that we've done our best. Take it from here. 

Incoherently yours, 
Alice Bost 
Ann Freeman
